From our Exchanges

More and more it is to be seen that science recognizes the great spiritual necessity of regeneration as the ground of unity between the sinner and the God against whom he has sinned. It will not be accounted unscientific to demand that this unity of the sinner with God shall be ministered to by a Son of God who is also the Son of Man, and who sends into the world as his great blessing and benediction the Paraclete, another Comforter, the Spirit of truth, who shall abide forever. When science reaches its highest altitude it will be Christian in its recognition, in its attitude, and in its confessions. When religion reaches its outermost bound it will be found to be in accord with all truth in all realms of knowledge. Science will not be antireligious, and religion will not be anti-scientific.

The Examiner.

When the religious aim has been corrected, when theology has been reseasoned and made spherical instead of hemispherical, when the pulpit has gained a message and really preaches Christ's gospel of the kingdom, with its social laws of service, sacrifice, and love, thus quickening and deepening the spiritual life of the church, and when the church perceives that her mission is not to get individual souls into heaven, but to create an ideal world—then religion will gain her rightful place and power to mold and Christianize the new civilization.
